Re: Cost of duty for new diaper from US?

You can always call Border Services if you want to know specifically. Generally for clothing not made in North America, duty is around 18%, and then you have to pay PST and GST as well (or HST or whatever.) Last time I called, they told me that if it was made in the US but the material was made in Asia (eg) then there would still be duty. Kind of odd. But anyway, depending on where you buy from, you often don't really have to pay duty, as the above poster said it depends on how the item is shipped. UPS and Fedex will always charge duty plus taxes plus a steep brokerage fee. Canada Post often does not.
